An expanded range of Amodel polyphthalamide (PPA) resins for automotive-electronics applications is now available. The Amodel Electronic (AE) grades eliminate corrosion problems in high-temperature and high-humidity conditions in sensors, connectors, electric motors, electronic-control-unit housings, bobbins, solenoids, and other circuit-protection devices.

The AE line eliminates shorting out or cross talk between sensitive electrical contacts. The line includes AE-4133, a high-flow, fast-cycling injection-moldable material available in black and natural. The material delivers a heat-distortion temperature of 300°C (572°F), making it suitable for surface-mount technology and laser welding.

Also available is AE-8133, which offers the high retention of dielectric properties. It is processed on oil-heated injection molds and is suitable for power-electronics applications for hybrid vehicles.

A developmental grade, Amodel PXM-11229, is a partially bio-based material that offers up to 5% lower specific gravity and one-third the moisture absorption of comparable glass-reinforced standard Amodel grades.
